What does Piers think of his critics?

Speaking to The Express, Piers said: “I think along with Donald Trump, Brexit and coronavirus, the Sussexes have made themselves one of the biggest news stories in the last three years, and they don’t want to be left alone.

“So I don’t really understand the criticism; I’m a columnist, I’m on TV every morning, I’m on Twitter all the time, obviously they are the fourth biggest story of the past three years so obviously I’m going to be commenting about it.

He went on to insist he doesn’t have an ‘obsession’ with her, saying that his criticisms are valid. He accused the pair of wanting to “have their royal cake and eat it”.
